At long last!
Supermerino Diamonds Cardigan
Pattern: my own (hope to have it up for sale in the next few weeks)
Yarn: Artyarns Supermerino…I think it was 10 skeins. From lettuce knit.
Needles: Denise US6
Finished: August 5, 2006
After months and months of sitting, this sweater is finally done. I don’t even remember when I started it…I got the yarn at Christmas, but I definitely didn’t cast on for a few months. And then the knitting was done, but I waited and waited to block it. And then there’s the buttons, which I finally put on today. I think I’m in a finishing mood, so more FOs to come soon!
Anyway, I love this sweater. Super, super comfy yarn that feels so good against the skin, and not itchy at ALL. Everything grew during blocking as I knew it would, so it fits perfectly now. A shot of the back, although a bit dark:
Although there’s no shaping in the body, it’s a close fit and hugs well anyway. The sleeves are nice and long, which I like. I can see wearing this a LOT. Plus, I know that Supermerino wears really well too, so not so much worrying about pilling!
Needs a snazzier name, though – suggestions? There may even be a prize involved, or something.
An FO from my garden, also long-awaited:
I harvested a good couple of burgundy beans from my container garden today! They are the most gorgeous, eggplant-y purple. Picked them a bit big, actually, but I haven’t been home much the last few days. There are quite a few more on the plants to pick in the next few days. And they turn green when you cook them! I had them briefly steamed, with my garlic broccoli and tofu tonight. Yum.
